LCT Magazine
has been the most influential global media brand for the chauffeured transportation industry for more than 30 years. One of its associated events, the International LCT Show, is the longest-running trade show of its kind, celebrating its 36th year in February.

METRO Magazine has served the bus and rail markets since 1904. METRO’s BusCon event, to be held in September, has been considered the largest bus show for the past two decades. News and industry thought-leadership aside, Sherb Brown, Bobit Business Media President, said the collective was created out of the need for the ultimate resource for benchmarking, training and connecting with other industry professionals.

“Bobit has served these industries for decades and we believe the Global Ground Transportation Institute is just the next step, filling the need for a global, responsive and diverse ground transportation networking and education platform that focuses on helping professionals find success not only now, but in the years to come,” said Brown.
